Wire fishimg, inspection hole etc. and some one was to lazy to fix it up. Other than general incompetence and laziness of the prior owner there is nothing to report here. Patch it and be on your way. Defects in your home are just something that need to be fixed. Unless you just bought the house and the prior owner failed to disclose significant defects or the owner and or realtor tried to cover a defect you have little recourse. This is not significant and easily repairable. The prior owner could easily claim no knowledge (like. "How would I know, I never took the baseboard off)" ) . There is no proof otherwise and it's not big enough to fight over. If he covered up a leaking roof, that is different story.

Thanks. Not worried about fixing it just determining how far to go. I want to avoid making a irreversible mistake, wasting time.

Fairly simple repair---add a bit of 1x2 blocking at the top---and screw in a piece of drywall--then tape ,fill and sand---most will be hidden by your new trim--so only the top portion of your patch need to look nice-------

Yep, may go half wall in tile which will require backer board anyway.
